We’re gonna’ kick off today with Leicester based Tribal Riot, an Indie-Electro outfit with a heavy sound.
Rising from the ashes of a punk band (as so many Electro-House acts do) they appear to have carried over that intensity into their new, synth based, direction. Mixing up Electro, Electro-House and Breakbeat Tribal Riot’s tracks utilise raw drums, distorted synths and the odd 8-bit sound with devastating effect. Check out ‘Awakening’, probably the most ‘musical’ of their crop, which manages to sound both rough ‘n’ ready and emotive.
Tribal Riot have also turned in this cracking reMix of Kasabian’s ‘Vlad The Impaler’, which is pure banger.
